10+ YEARS


Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Back from the Hills

Last week at the Cabin was a great experience. It was one of the first times I've been there in a while where I didn't want to leave. The kids loved it, partly because of the 4-wheeler, but also because they were outside the whole time. Allowing kids to get as dirty as they want is kindof fun. Abbie liked it so much she said she wanted to move there. Who knows, maybe she will someday.

When we arrived at the cabin on Sunday, there was lots of tall grass everywhere.

The Cabin

My mom, a.k.a. "The Burn Boss" (that's her new title at work), made quick work of the fire danger and spent the next 3 days mowing down the grass and killing any knapweed she found.

The nightly hangout

When we weren't hanging out, riding "Rockit" or building the new cabin, we enjoyed Glacier Park and putting a foundation under my parent's bedroom.

It's coooollld Getting close

On the way home, we stopped and saw my aunt in Helena, then spent the night at the Old Faithful Snow Lodge. Saturday was a long 11-hour drive through Wyoming.

All in all, it was a great road trip. I think I've had enough driving for a while though. In the first week alone, I hit 7 states in 7 days!

Hey Matt, What a great trip! How did you get the cabin up onto the foundation? (I'm guessing that pic #5 is the foundation that the cabin is being scooted on in pic #7) Did you lift it with the backhoe?

You guessed right - we used the Excavator to lift up corners, stack blocks under it, and then once it was high enough - pushed it forward. The pictures don't do any justice - it as a 6 hour ordeal!
